Prog Reviewer
3 stars "The Ghost Of Autumn" is the second release by the US prog rock trio SCAPELAND WISH whose first album "Reason" back in 2000 simply gave me shivers as I listened. Boy can these guys write, play and sing ! "The Ghost Of Autumn" is a magical album full of dynamic musicianship, postive energy and creative song writing. SCAPELAND WISH are Josh Ramirez (vocals and drums), Mike Stiskal (drums, guitars and backing vocals) and Kevin Forsberg (guitars). Musically hard to exactly peg down but with their balanced focus on both progressive and rock tendencies end up delivering a mesh of RUSH, STYX, ECHOLYN, CAMEL, DIXIE DREGS and KANSAS all in one! For those love great vocals will simply kills for this album as Ramirez's voice is clear and powerful and blends to perfection with the band. Guitar and bass work is also superb with some excellent soloing and interplay throughout. "The Willow Song" would have to be one of the best tracks I have heard in a long time by any band with its deeply emotional delivery, deep toned sounds, GiILMOUR'esque guitar solos, interesting timing, captivating gentle vocals/harmonies all surrounded by a fantastic themed song.
